A BJP councillor from Meerut was arrested on Saturday after a video of him assaulting a Sub-Inspector went viral, ANI reported. In the video, the councillor Munish Kumar could be seen thrashing the police officer inside a hotel owned by the former.

The sub-inspector, who was accompanied by a lady lawyer, got into an argument with a waiter which later turned violent as Kumar intervened. The councillor could be heard accusing the cop of being drunk and also hurled abuses at him, to which the lady lawyer retaliated similarly.

A case has been registered against Kumar under section 395 (punishment for dacoity) and 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of Indian Penal Code and further probe has been ordered.

“Munish Kumar has been arrested under non-bailable offences and he will be produced before a court today. His supporters came here to protest, we showed them evidence. They were convinced and went back. The Sub-Inspector shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Probe on,” Meerut SP R Singh was quoted as saying.
